Notes From Your Soldier's Notebook

The Sixth Service Command, headquartered in Chicago, had among its ranks SGT Buddy Clark and CPL Bob Eberle who sang with Tommy Dorsey's band before the War, SGT Carmen Dello who would conduct the 334th Army Services Band, and SGT Boris Apolsky. Before the War, Apolsky went by the stage name Boris Aplon and played the notorious Ivan Shark on Captain Midnight, as well as appearing on First Nighter, Ma Perkins, Lux Radio Theater and Myrt and Marge. Along with other projects, the Sixth Service Command out these soldiers on the air with Notes From Your Soldier's Notebook. The weekly syndicated program featured the music of the 334th Army Service Band and songs from vocalists Clark and Eberle, along with stories about soldiers who were performing heroically at home and abroad. Boris Aplon was the announcer and host of the program. Notes dedicated several episodes to playing requests from patients in military hospitals, as well as War stories told by the heroes who lived them. [otrcat.com]
